Reasons for Tooth Extraction
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are extra sets of molars that typically emerge in the mid to late teens or early twenties. Wisdom teeth can erupt in a way that compromises your oral health or have trouble erupting at all, causing painful impaction that affects the jaw and adjacent molars. Many people undergo the routine removal of their wisdom teeth.
Severe Decay and Fractures
While dental restorations have come a long way over the years, it's not always possible to save a severely decayed or fractured tooth. When a tooth's structure is so compromised that it cannot be saved, the best option is extraction followed by replacement with a bridge or implant-supported crown.
Some root canal infections and cases of periodontal disease might be too advanced to treat. In these situations, removing affected teeth and preventing the spread of infection is key. Extraction is the most sensible option for a patient's short-term and long-term health and wellness.
Preparation for Dentures and Implants
When a person is missing most or nearly all of their teeth, extraction is often recommended to help with restorative dentistry procedures. Removing any remaining or obtrusive teeth can help us craft a custom set of full dentures, or achieve an ideal position for dental implants.
Braces and other orthodontic treatments may not be enough to treat severe crowding. In some cases, dentists may use tooth extraction to help with the orthodontic treatment plan. Extraction increases space and can improve the alignment of your smile.
